You have hit a roadblock again. You've tried compromising, you've tried letting issues go, you've tried it all. Maybe it's them, maybe it's you, but either way, you need a solution so that you can move forward because life does not stop. Schools have to be chosen, medical bills have to be paid and kids have to be fed (properly that is). So you need a court order, one that is fair and considers everything your family has gone through.
It sets boundaries for:
What will be paid for by whom, when someone will have their time with the children(holidays, school closings etc.), who will be making decisions, how the parties will behave with the children and where pickups and drop-offs will occur with children.
